Sorry folks, it's a Blonde Joke.

A young redhead goes into the doctor's office and says that her body
hurts wherever she touches it.
"Impossible," says the doctor. "Show me."
She takes her finger and pushes her elbow and screams in agony.
She pushes her knee and screams, pushes her ankle and screams.
Everywhere she touches makes her scream.
The doctor says, "You're not really a redhead, are you?"
"No," she says, "I'm actually a blonde."
"I thought so," the doctor says.
"Your finger is broken."

Go Ahead. I Dare You to Try This!

How Smart Is Your Right Foot?


This is so funny that it will boggle your mind. And you will keep trying it
at least 50 more times to see if you can outsmart your foot. But you

1. While sitting at your desk, lift your right foot off the floor and make
clockwise circles with it.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right
hand. Your foot will change direction!!!

I told you so... And there is nothing you can do about it.

Thoughts on immigration and today's March.

I am not a native born son of Uncle Sam. I was born and raised in a foreign nation.

I came to the United States in the late 50's, legally. Filling out forms, dotting the "i"s and crossing the "t"s.

I had to prove I had a job in the United States and my employer had to show that I was selected for my job because other candidates were unqualified.
I had to get a letter from the Police Department of EVERY city I had lived in to prove I did not have a criminal record of any sort.
I had to get a physical examination including a Chest X-ray.
I needed a birth certificate and assorted documents.
I had to wait in line to enter the United States because there was a daily quota.
I had to register for the draft when I entered even though I wasn't a citizen.
I had to register at the local post office each January and inform the Justice Department of my current address.

That's how I entered the United an immigrant....and eventually obtained my citizenship after studying the Constitution, the history and values of this nation.

Some people say that that sort of law is antiquated. Man, that is fifty years ago. Times change.

The Ten Commandments is a law that is a lot older than that...and most of us still abide by it.

I think both set of laws are pretty darn good.

Today, the Immigrants' rights advocates who organized the "National Day of Action," have planned the "Great American Boycott," urging their followers...some of whom are illegal flex their economic muscle. Protesters are being urged to refrain from shopping, and to stay away from school and work.

I just don't think it's the right thing to do to a country that has been so good to "this" immigrant.

I noticed that Nancy's lawn didn't get trimmed today.

I know that Dave's renovation crew didn't show up for work today.

But I did notice that the staff at the gym and the grocery store were on the job.

To all Americans...native born or those who came from another land to be an American...I say...don't be racist or violent. Don't be boastful, arrogant, selfish, or distasteful.

Just show a little power of your own....Buy something today. It doesn't have to be a new car or house.

Buy groceries. Go out to eat. Get the kids pizza. Fill up your tank. Shop for clothes, furniture, outdoor equipment. If it needs to be bought, BUY IT TODAY.

And if you feel so inclined, pass this along to a friend.
